Heyya FabFree! We made it half way to the weekend! And I hope your Wednesday is treating you right. Now I’m gonna treat you to a gorgeous little freebie that just may make your Wednesday awesome.

This is the “Taylor” dress from I.M.Collection and you can grab it for free when you wear your Teleport HUB group tag. Now I’ve talked all about the Teleport HUB Group… 10L join fee, tons of free gifts all over the Grid, just slap the poster to join… So let’s talk about this sweet Summer sundress. I love the soft pink stripes that aren’t too baby pink and the straps in the back are so delicate. It’s a really beautifully built dress. It makes me think of candy stripers and pink roses. Just a lovely Summer dress all the way around.

Straight Out of a Fairytale

Straight Out of a Fairytale

This magical lady has come straight from the pages of her own story.  A land filled with beauty, freedom and love, where mystical beings and the every day mingle in a tapestry filled with sparkling adventure and daring.  The best part of her story is that it isn’t completely written yet, and we can all help make it come true…

The Neverending Story

It’s always such fun to put together magical looks and places in SL – an idea that tells a story, put together with free or dollarbie finds really is my passion.  I’ve picked up a few more prizes from the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt.  I love showing these items off so much!  There’s less than a week to go, so if you see something you fancy, don’t wait too long!  Today I’m wearing the Mickellena Gown from Frick n Frack which will set you back just 5L.  You know me, I love a cat themed outfit – plus  you’ll find six pretty pastel shades in the HUD!

In the background, you’ll see the amazing brainchild of Kim’s Kreations.  A whole little magical world that comes forth out of a massive storybook.  Each prize here is just 1L.  You’ll be able to pick up lots of different parts to put together a super cute book nook which includes the big book, a table, a couch, a path made of books, a sparkling tree…and so much more.  What a deal for just 1L each!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

  • Venus

Not too much time left to take part!  You’ve got til July 22nd!

Purple Rain

Purple Rain

Heyya FabFree! Into every life a little rain must fall, right? That was my first thought when I saw this adorable dress, shoes and parasol gift from :AU:.

See, I was strolling through the Darkness Event, which is chock full of free gifts right now picking everything up left and right.  Most of the gifts are what you’d expect… dark and broody. Now don’t get me wrong I love a little darkness as much as the next Fae. But I think my darkness may be tempered with a little silliness. Or at least a little Lolly Goth-ness.

So I had to have this sweet little dress with it’s flourishes and skulls and the pretty purple. The fact that it comes with matching booties and a lacey parasol just makes it a keeper in my book.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitmesh – XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Physique

I also picked up a pack of ten poses for free from Posesion at the Darkness. The pose pack “Halloween” includes ten well designed poses ready for action. I am using one of the poses for this photo. Just be aware that the hold script in my new parasol overrides the pose in the right arm.

Hey FabFree! It looks like this summer is slipping by sooo fast! Can you believe it’s nearly Mid July? The Hair Fair and the Shop and Hop are 2021 are just good memories now. But don’t despair! There are still tons of freebies and gifts to be found. Like the lovely little sun dress I’m wearing today with the matching espadrilles both from Baby Monkey.

 The “Daisy Ingrid” dress is the current gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. The SLF&O group is free to join and is a great source of gifts and prizes from all over the grid. “Ingrid” is a great gift to get too. The details are perfect and I love the summer sky blue.

My matching shoes are an especially awesome free gift.  The “Daisy Espadrilles” are the FabFree Group’s own gift this month from Baby Monkey.  Just like the dress, the shoes are so pretty and so well designed. I have never been disappointed with anything from Baby Monkey and this charming set is no different.

Forest Friends

Forest Friends

Time for another ramble through the Enchanted Forest!  I’m having a bit of a conversation with the keepers of the deep woods today, asking them if they prefer green tea or chamomile.  Apparently the sprites are divided on exactly which type suits them better.  Though they do keep asking me why I’m so obsessed with their eating habits.  What, a girl’s gotta know!

Dressed Up

I’ll start off with my pretty dress, which comes to us courtesy of Rosary.  They crank out fairly regular group gifts to their group members, and this has been one of my fave from the last few months.  I love the zippers!  There are lots of different colour and texture options, ranging from this pure white all the way to a riotous flower-strewn pattern.  The Rosary group is currently 350L to join, but there are a few other gifts out, and there are quite regular ones as I mentioned.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Back into the Forest

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt is still raging on, and I am always so pleased to show you the prizes.  I put together my little idyllic forest spot with the prizes from Myth, Mystery and Magic (the tree and forest friends around it will cost you just 5L) and Lunaria (the animated ground cover sways delicately in the breeze, and costs just 5L, and the gorgeous flowery tree arch another 5L.) .

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt runs until July 22nd, and there is so so much prettiness to discover!  Give our lovely designers your support. ♥

Footprints in the Sand

Footprints in the Sand
The sun is shining today, shining with all it’s might.  I’m trying so very hard not to add the next line of “and this was odd because it was the middle of the night” – you Alice in Wonderland fans out there feel me, right?  Anyway, sunshine calls for tiny outfits and footprints in the sand.  Are you the type that likes to wander on an empty beach and pick  up shells?  Or do crowded beaches filled with teeming bodies appeal to you?  It takes all kinds – but I’m enjoying my space today.

Just a Little Posh

There’s a new event on the block – the Posh Event.  They’re celebrating their first opening with several gifts out that you can pick up with the free group tag (some don’t require a tag at all!).  I found this sort of swimwear-esque outfit at the Off Shore Outfitters booth, and it made me feel very summery indeed.  You’ll find a few other fun free gifts there too!

  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Have a great Saturday, FabFree!

The Fae’s Retreat

The Fae's Retreat
This little woodland fairy is pondering whether or not to invite her friends over for tea.  Does she have enough seed cakes, honey and scones to go around?  There are always plenty of berries in the forest, and a never ending supply of chamomile so the tea doesn’t ever run out.  A merry gathering it shall be… but… no humans allowed!

The Deep Woods

I am having such a good time putting together outfits and imaginary worlds on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt.  Every time I unpack something, I get all excited at how pretty and imaginative the gifts are.  I made three stops today, and I had so much fun putting this photo together that I may just become a woodland inhabitant forever!  My first stop was Grasshopper St.  This shop is just so lovely in the way that it evokes the class and lush feel of an olde world millinery shop.  I picked up this gorgeous cloche for just 3L, and the parasol was 3L as well. Both are resizable so will fit like a dream.  Aren’t they amazing?  Love it!

Fit for the Fae

Raindale has long been one of my fave stops for distinctive furniture.  When they joined the hunt, I couldn’t think of a better place to evoke the enchanted forest feel we were going for.  The furniture that peppers my little hidden forest abode is all 1L each, and really is completely beautiful.  You’ll want to add every item to your collection, just like I did!

Secrets of the Unicorn

Ishiku has also come up with an amazing concept for our hunt – the cracked monolith is HUGE and just such an interesting set to add to your hidden garden.  Each item is just 5L each and is completely and utterly gorgeous in every detail.  You’ll get the massive stone monolith, the etched stone, the magical unicorn horn vial and the golden stand for it.  It’s utterly brilliant!  I’m gushing a bit, but honestly…it’s fantastic.

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt is running until July 22nd!  Show our awesome designers some love!  Here’s one more photo for good measure… (can you tell I had fun with this shoot?)

Back on the Art Thing

Back on the Art Thing

During my years with FabFree, lots of fun things have happened.  Other than massive piles of freebies that now pad my inventory and make it groan, I’ve met some great people, made some really close friends, and taken more pictures than I can possibly count.  Once in a while, someone comes along and really makes me smile and realise that FabFree is a special thing to be a part of.  We’re not really just a blog, we’re a community of people who love to share what we find, and sometimes even make something to give right back.

Tess

Therese Carfagno is an avid reader of FabFree, and she always takes the time to comment on our posts (which we totally love, by the way).  She currently has a really awesome art exhibition going on that features abstract photos comprised of gorgeous, swirling colours.  Therese knows that I am not always a massive fan of modern art (sorry again to all the aficionados) but she took it upon herself to make a little something that would make me smile, and that I could share with all of you as well.  You’ll see two of her masterpieces behind me, the one on the left something classical to tickle my fancy (it’s called For Aline…squee!) and the one on the right that has done a rather good job of convincing me that modern art sure can be pretty.  You can pick up both of this pretty items for just 1L each – and do take a look at all her other awesome work while you’re there.  Oh, and if you’re wondering what she’s talking about regarding a hamburger, you can read my post HERE.

And the Outfit

Recently, Promagic announced a new free group for their fans, and with it came the bombshell announcement that there are 100 gifts in their gift room.  There are some really pretty items to be had.  Today I’m showing off the Amor Dress and Bra, that comes with a rather extensive HUD to change the colours, and the Dua heels that snake up your legs and sparkle in a rather appealing way. You’ll find loads more in the Promagic gift room!

Learning to Sail

Coming Soon

Hey, FabFree. Have you ever gone sailing in SL? I can tell you that it’s really fun! I used to go out with my friends on the water all the time. It’s so relaxing going out on the water at Black Sea and just sailing all your troubles away. I recently decided that I’m going to learn to sail myself, so I headed over to Tradewinds Yachtclub to pick up some free boats and resources to start my new learning journey! Before I get to the free boats, though, I have some awesome free makeup and 1L hair lights to share with you that I wore on my visit to the yacht club!

Kawaii Cute

The adorable pink blush I am wearing is a free group gift at Pout!. It’s called the “Cutie patootie Kawaii hearts & blush set” which is a really cute name too! This is a bit of an older gift from earlier this year, but it hasn’t been shown on the blog yet so I’m happy to share it. There are several different patterns of blush, including heart shapes, included in the set of blushes. The Pout! group is free to join and many past gifts are still out. 

The blush comes in the following appliers and fits. 

Appliers Included

    • BOM
    • Catwa
    • Genus
    • Lelutka Origin (this applier will also work on Lelutka Evolution if you wear the Lelutka Evo HUD)

[POUT!] Cutie patootie  - Kawaii hearts & blush

Hair lights!

The second deal I have to share today are the cute bright lights in my hair. These only cost 1 L at Magika! You will need the free Magika group tag to get these hair lights for only 1L. They’re a bit of a hidden gem, and you can find them right next to the Nova hair on sale at the store. These hair lights are meant to be worn with the Nova hair, but I’m sure they could work with other hairs in your inventory too! You can wear the lights as white like I have here or as red and green which would be great for future Christmases!

A whole load of free sail boats

Now back to the topics of my visit to the Yacht cub and sailing, I should also mention that Tradewinds Yachtclub has a whole whack of free sailboats out around the sim! I grabbed them all. As I really want to learn how to sail, this seems like the perfect spot to grab those free boats! I’ve been told the freebie boats on this sim are great to learn from.

Enjoy sailing, FabFree!

Loud and Proud

Loud and Proud

We’re still rolling through the awesome Pride gifts that have cropped up all over the grid recently, and this one I’ve got on is no exception.  I’m swathed in rainbows on the daily now, and I’m pretty cool about it.  Not gonna lie!  June has been shaping up to be an awesome month on the freebie and group gift front, and it’s all so bright and happy that it never fails to lift my mood.

See Love Blossom

There’s a free group gift over at Apple Blossom to celebrate pride!  This top and jeans is free for members of the Apple Blossom group, which is free to join.  The top and jeans can be worn separately and have loads of different colour options in the HUD.  While you’re there, you’ll also find a skirt to go with this cool look… so many options!
